The missionary position may seem like the physical equivalent of the old "I'm tired" excuse — it's the brush-off used when you're lazy, exhausted, or just not that interested— but it's actually one of the best sex positions for fitness. It actually will start burning. Patti Britton, author of The Art of Sex Coaching and former president of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, agrees that you'll definitely be feeling it in your abs. That's where women tend to get stuck — they tend to rely on their lower back to give them propulsion.

Worst-case scenario, you could throw out your back or sustain some other injury — not exactly a bedroom turn-on. The missionary position can also provide a good butt workout. And last, but certainly not least, if you employ the coital alignment technique , you'll get some great clitoral stimulation during this workout sex position. As with the missionary position, penetration-from-behind sex yes, doggy style is also a great sex position for fitness because the receiving partner has to use their core to stabilize themselves on all fours, says Berman.

You'll also be working your quadriceps and glutes to help brace yourself against the impact. However, you can use a modified position to get a good arm workout , too. Rather than having your hands flat on the bed, "if the receiving partner has their hands on a wall in front of them and sort of uses their upper body to help thrust, that would be a good shoulder and upper body workout," says Berman.

Pro tip: You can do that workout sex position in the shower , too. BTW, core strength is super important. Fulbright, a certified sex educator and author of Touch Me There! Modifying the rider position can work additional muscle groups. That's all butt, legs, and hips," says Berman. Like the missionary position, the lotus sitting position is one of the more passive sex positions — but still holds a place as one of the best sex positions for fitness.

Many of the same muscles worked in the rider or cowgirl position are going to be used in this contortion, making it ideal workout sex: the core is engaged to stabilize the body, and the glutes are worked during thrusting. Standing is one of the more challenging positions because often the receiving partner has to allow the partner to lift them in some way, says Britton. If the partners are facing each other in this workout sex position, core, and upper-leg strength comes into play: If the receiving partner is standing on one leg, those leg muscles are worked to stay upright, and core muscles are engaged to keep balanced.

If they're wrapping both legs around the partner, they'll need good arm strength to hold onto the partner. And regardless which one of these contortions they're in, "you have to have stamina, if you're standing," says Britton. If the partners are facing the same direction, the same muscles engaged in doggy-style are used: the receiving partner work their core for balance, and their arms can be worked if they're bracing against a wall or headboard and using them to help thrust. These moves can also come in handy when having chair sex.

According to Britton, the scissors workout sex position is the least strenuous of all — there's no suspending of body weight, and it generally makes for gentler and slower penetration which would explain why it's often recommended for pregnant women. Still, that's not to say you won't be engaging muscle groups. With your legs intercrossed with your partner's, there's limited movement for both people, so a lot of inner-thigh strength and core stabilization will be at work, making this a great sex position for fitness. Outside the bedroom, build inner-thigh muscle with these exercises.

With the bridge, the receiving partner is facing upward, using all four limbs to hold their body weight off the bed. All our experts agree: This pose is not easy. Even if you pile a tower of pillows under your back to help support your weight which Britton recommends , you'll still definitely be working your buttocks and inner-thigh muscles, says Fulbright. Unless you're really strong, don't expect to hold this workout sex position for long.

The arch is a modified bridge pose, with the receiving partner resting on their shoulders while using their legs to hold the lower body off the bed. Your core muscles, glutes, and thighs are all worked in the arch. However, Britton considers this a much safer workout sex position than the bridge: "There's no strain on the neck or shoulder region, which can seize up. Sure, you might hate doing lunges at the gym while your personal trainer is telling you to do "just five more," but you might not mind them so much when they're being used for workout sex.

As the name might suggests, the lunge sex position has the receiving partner sitting on top of the other partner, with one leg planted in front and the other leg extended behind in between the other partner's legs. This move is good for the quad, front of the leg, hamstring, core, and butt, says Berman. By Jocelyn Voo Updated March 16, Save FB Tweet More. Young couple having sex in bedroom.
